Where to have Lunch?
Madam Kwan, You are not in Malaysia if you skip their local dishes. In here you will find truly Malaysian cuisine, Madam Kwan combines elements of rich cultural mix of cuisine in Malaya to created Malaysian dishes for all food lovers to enjoy. From the signature Nasi Lemak to “wok” style Hokkien mee, there’s something for everyone to savour those special dishes that is uniquely Malaysian. Not forget to mention, that this place is very comfortable, with cafe style interior yet very elegance. Who said enjoy the local cuisine has to be in night market or at the street?

, Located in the iconic Pavilion shopping mall, offers a traditional yet authentic Lebanese cuisine. Offerings include mezze (a variety of either hot or cold dishes in small portions), traditional Lebanese salads, chawarma and of course raw lamb meat dishes for the more adventurous, as not a fans of middle east cuisines, Al-Amra
is my best exception. When it comes to the décor, a unique and warm interior comes with traditional feel. The deep and comfy sofas on the spacious outdoor terrace beckon customers to come relax and enjoy a soothing fruit flavored Shisha whilst enjoying an exceptional view of bustling Jalan Bukit Bintang.
